Passing of Graham Kirkwood

It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Graham Kirkwood. Graham was a lifelong musician and tremendous supporter of the Niagara Hamilton branch as a player, teacher, and judge. The expertise and laughter he brought to the world of drumming will be deeply missed.

In memory of Graham the family wishes to have monetary donations go to the Branch. All donations will be put towards future Agnew Harrison competitions. If you would like to make a donation please send an e-transfer to the email address below.

Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario

The PPBSO — the Pipers’ and Pipe Band Society of Ontario — administers piping, drumming and pipe band contest at various highland games throughout Ontario. Several of these annual summer competitions have special designations, including the North American Championship, the Canadian Championship and the Ontario Championship.

The Niagara-Hamilton Branch is one of several local PPBSO branches throughout Ontario. We hold monthly meetings from October through April.

In addition to being a fun social gathering, our meetings provide opportunities to develop piping and drumming in our area.

We hold annual Amateur Competitions for amateur pipers and drummers.

We also hold the Livingstone InvitationalAgnew-Harrison Drumming Invitational, support the George Sherriff Memorial Invitational and The Highland Gala.
